Eddie Bauer or LL Bean? Which is best ladies?

Looking for a high quality (not Ralph Lauren's $500.00 Black Label) black cotton, collared, button front shirt to wear with jeans and a blazer, and boots as well as other things.  Dillard's Antonio Melano doesn't have one, so which would be the best choice?  

 

Thanks!

I like Lands End myself, especially their Starfish line. Excellent quality and they often have great sales and coupons.

I like both.  But, all things being equal, I'd go to LL Bean - free shipping though returns cost $6.50.  On the other hand, Eddie charges for shipping but you can return to your local Eddie Bauer store.

I like Eddie Bauer for a selfish reason - they have tall sizes!

More of then not, after looking at both, I actually purchase from Eddie Bauer.

They're both good IMO. I think Eddie Bauer might be a bit younger/stylish in their look, and LL Bean is classic, sturdy and durable. 

 

I used to buy from Eddie Bauer when they had a store in our mall. Now I don't have a place to make easy returns, so I don't shop with them.

 

LL Bean has free shipping for everyone, and Bean credit card holders get free return labels as well. I buy from them fairly often. I like their tees, jackets and sweaters.

Brooks Brothers does the best shirts, they have  three fits and the quality is awesome!  If you wait for a sale they are reasonable. I have some of mine for over 5 years and they look new. Money well spent.

I like Eddie Bauer and LLBean equally; both are very good. However, I actually prefer Lands End. I think their quality is exceptional and they're a little more fashionable with full range is sizing options.

I think Eddie Bauer quality is a bit better.
